$600 Shapeways Printing Credit for $300

Hello all, I have acquired $600 in printing vouchers to Shapeways from a couple contests, they are actually divided into three separate vouchers of $100, $250, and $250. I'm sure I can find something awesome to use the money to print but as I'm in college now I could better spend this towards something else (books!!). I'd be willing to do %40 percent off for an individual voucher (so 60 for 100 or 150 for 250) or %50 percent off for all 3 together. Feel free to message me if interested. Thanks!

What material should I use to make a mold for ABS injection molding? Answered

I want to design a mold to be used for ABS injection, but I'm not sure which material would produce the best results.  I want to design it and upload it to a manufacturer like shapeways or i.materialise.  They have a few different materials to choose from here for shapeways, and here for i.materialise.  What do you suggest would be the best material for a mold used to create professional looking ABS parts?

Someone to paint a white, strong & flexible ring from Shapeways

Hi, I would like to buy a ring from Shapeways but before buying it in silver I would like to buy it in plastic to see if I actually like it on my finger so I was wondering if someone would be able to paint it for me. The main colour would be silver with a little bit of green and blue on the face.  As for the paint I was thinking of enamel or acrylic depending on which would last longer. Would anyone be interested in doing this? Side note: Would I get a better response by having this thread in the Art section of this forum?

Remember CNC machining the prize?

Hi,  Wonder if anyone can help.  I remember sometime in the last 3 years there was a competition where one of the prizes was a cash voucher for a machining service. Like Shapeways but for CNC machining.  Just wondered if anyone remembers what the service was called? I have been asked to re create a spinning wheel and thought it would be cool to use there services for a part which would be very difficult for me to make otherwise.  Any help would be ace. :)

How Can I Make a Display Stand for my Custom Starship?

I designed a custom Star Trek ship for my friend for Christmas and had it 3D printed through Shapeways. I'd really like to make a stand for it, but since she's coming home right after New Years and I'm running very low on funds I can't have one 3D printed. Is there a relatively cheap and quick way to make a decent looking stand, preferably one that doesn't physically attach to the ship? Here's a photo of it, just in case that helps!

Extrusion plate in CAD

I have an idea that requires either machining abilities/tool access or CAD experience. A while ago, I found out something that was apparently common knowledge. Meat grinders with their blades removed can be used to extrude spaghetti. So I decided to look for additional pasta extruder plates for different noodles. There are no pasta extruder plates for standard meat grinders. You can, however, buy a glorified grinder and accessory plates or a dedicated pasta machine for top dollar. The marketted pasta makers at their very cores are the same as the meat grinders with the right plates installed. Obviously pasta dies/plates for meat grinders are intentionally not produced. The closest I could come was a garage sale extruder that looks like a plastic grinder with three dies. Big surprise, it doesnt work. But I modified a plate so it sort of works for a grinder. This worked as proof of concept. Would anyone be interested in helping to design CAD files to print pasta dies on Shapeways based on proper pasta dies? I don't know much about CAD, but it looks easier than the designs created by some folks on here. Basically disks with a dimple for alignment and specially shaped holes. admittedly, the hole depths would be the complicated part. Let me know what you think.

Advice needed for complex project - "digital typewriter"

I was browsing kickstarter recently and I noticed a really cool new toy, called the hemingwrite. It's described as a "distraction free digital typewriter". Basically, it looks like a keyboard hooked up to an e-ink screen which lets you write without distractions. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adamleeb/hemingwrite-a-distraction-free-digital-typewriter Sounds pretty cool, yeah? But for $400? C'mon... It got me thinking; surely you could build that for way less. So why not have a go? It seems to me that it would require just a few simple components: - USB keyboard - E-ink screen (from an old kindle perhaps) - A controller to run the software - Some form of rechargable battery - A printed case from shapeways - Wifi not really needed, but I do have a spare laptop wireless card sitting around I've built a kit keyboard myself before (Ergodox), but I don't have enough experience to do something like this. Basically what I'm looking for is someone - or preferably, multiple people! - who can help me to work out how to do the things I've never done before. I need to know which board to use, how to hook it up to the screen and how can I design some software (or even better, find something pre-rolled) to act as a very basic text editor which could save the files to a USB drive / CF card. How difficult would this be? Is it even possible? I'm really keen to find out if it is. Any advice appreciated! :)

3D Printed Luggage Tag ( Church Window Style )

Buy at Shapeways Made and Tested 3D Printed, Creative, Custom-Made, Non-Massive Design. Hi, this is a Luggage Tag Design. ( I would call it "The Old Church Window" ). When I saw similar luggages with similar tags passing through at LAX air port luggage claim, and could not find my luggages, I decided to design another tag that provides easy and unique identification for my luggages. This tag design is inspired from the old church window, under which I enjoy the sunlight each sunday morning when attending Missa. Features of this Luggage Tag: * Your business card ( Max. 55 x 90 mm ) can be inserted into this tag. In case your luggage is lost, someone who picked it can unfasten and pull out your business card and contact you. Your card is securely locked inside when you fasten the tag onto your luggage's side handle. I would recommend using Hemp Twine * It's made of nylon-12, the strongest material that stands the toughest transportation. * I can have your name printed on this tag. Just email your name - as short as possible please - to ning@7plain.net * In case your luggage is lost, people who found it can see through the window and be sure it's your business card inside. They will not open anything if they can not be sure what's inside. * Window is among the objects that are the easiest for humans to recognize. Window is more recognizable among all those regular tags at air port luggage claim. * Finally, I just wish you enjoy its creativity. Travel with a "window" is a lot of fun. Standard * Made of nylon-12, strong nylon used to produce gears, in various color options. (Please select color before " Add To Cart ". View Material Property) * Made in Netherland / USA. * Worldwide shipping. (Buying several items in one shipment can save cost.

Leaving China and Taking a Part With Me.

My time was short, it seems my time is always short. Groggily I was pulled from bed the day after the Maker Faire. Spending the night at Eric's place was so wonderful, it was my first nights sleep since leaving America a few days earlier. We loaded Eric Pans car with gear and headed out to pick up a 3D printer. 3D printing technology is booming in the states, nearly every hackerspace in America has a Makerbot and design firms have Shapeways to turn to to get their rapid prototyping. But elsewhere in the world these things are still fresh! Sharing tools is something I love to do because you never know where people's creativity will take them. You never can know all the problems in the world, but all the people know all their problems! One of my missions then is to share low cost and open technologies to people I think can make awesome use of them! The night before after the Shenzhen Maker Faire all the Makers were invited to a gathering. Beer, frogs on skewers and peanuts were all provided free of charge. We ate, drank, wheeled and dealed. Wiess Tech is a filament company in Shenzhen and they have started noticing that more and more of their customers were 3D printers. Especially DIY 3D printers. So they've begun to make Makerbot replicas with some modifications. And there I was - I wanted a 3D printer to bring with me to Beirut and they wanted… Well, I wasn't sure. The language barrier between us was strong. Somehow Eric and I convinced them that it would be a good idea to give me a machine, and perhaps I'd pay them back when I got to the states. At this point I was at $244 dollars and dropping and I couldn't even afford the incredible hackerspace price the company was offering of $500 dollars! They agreed, and that's how I found myself rushing off to their head quarters the next morning before catching my ship. But first. We must go to Seeed Studio to buy a cup of coffee from the robotic tweeting (QQ) coffee machine in their break room. Hahaha! We headed out to Wiess Tech and on the way there we drive by construction zone after construction zone. Aparently Shenzhen didn't exist 30 years ago, and now you can still see the signs of a rapid expansion. Everything here is growing at an incredible pace, and apparently even maker culture. We arrive at Wiess HQ, which is housed in a 30 story complex decked out with multiple confusing entrances, cafeterias and dual elevators for the odd and even numbered floors. After spending a bit of time wondering how to get to floor 22 and circling the building, we found ourselves face to face with a small crew of about 8people. A few people managing papers, a secretary, some of the marketing team, and one guy sitting at a table putting together Wiess Tech versions of the thingimatic. After speaking with them we find that they also sell a machines based around the Reprap project, one of the earliest open 3D printing projects and have in the works a few models of their own designs. I'm excited to see how Weiss Tech bootstraps itself off of open sourced designs and starts producing their own versions! I hope to see a whole new generation of better, faster and cheaper machines that stay open! Go Weiss Tech! Heading out to take a 3D panorama from their deck Eric rushes and tells me that my ship leaves in 20 mins and that the time is now. After an awkward moment or two talking about paypal and me giving them advice on staying open we undo all their packing (too bulky) throw the machine into my luggage and run. In the car Eric and I discuss the future of Chinese makers. It really seems this is just the start of something much larger. It's an exciting time, his company is building great products, more Chinese companies are looking at open source technologies and more people are calling themselves makers. Perhaps it's through Maker culture China will be able to become more than the King of manufacturing, but also participate in producing quality designs and solving serious problems. Leaving China, the baggage handlers on the ferry were rough handling Adriana, my 3D printer, and it really cut deep. But as I watched Shenzhen bay slowly recede, I knew the next time i came back, again, everything would again be different. This is the pace of China and yet it seems softened by the fog falling over the rolling green hills. +Bilal Ghalib

Included in this kit: Grove Air quality sensor Grove Encoder Grove Flame Sensor Grove Gas Sensor(MQ2) Grove Infrared Temperature Sensor Grove Moisture Sensor Grove SPDT Relay(30A) Grove Speaker   Environmental & Agriculture This kit is designed with agriculture in mind.  The 7 sensors in this kit can help you determine light, UV and dust in the environment and based on that information one could rinse a plant off with the water pump and/or water the plant and not waste any water because a flow sensor is included. There is an LED bar for visual output and a dry reed relay to turn things on and off. Included in this Kit: 6V Mini Water Pump G14 Water Flow Sensor Grove Digital Light Sensor Grove Dry-Reed Relay Grove Dust Sensor Grove Gas Sensor(MQ5) Grove LED Bar Grove Moisture Sensor Grove UV Sensor Grove Water Sensor Transportation and Safety This kit is designed with vehicle safety in mind. These 6 sensors can help you keep from getting lost, tell you if you have pulled forward far enough in the garage and even keep your garage from accidentally closing on you. In addition there is an alcohol sensor to determine if you have had too much fun. Included in this Kit: Grove Alcohol Sensor Grove GPS Grove I2C Touch Sensor Grove Infrared Reflective Sensor Grove IR Distance Interrupter Grove PIR Motion Sensor Robotics Create the next robot overlord or at the very least a cool vehicle. This kit has 2 motor drivers and 4 planet geared motors—you supply a chassis.  There are also a few items to determine distance and track a line.  This kit will likely require the most additional items from the maker, but it also provides some useful pieces to get started exploring robotics. Have other ideas—maybe a quad-copter we are eager to see what you create! Included in this Kit: Grove 3-Axis Digital Compass Grove Hall Sensor Grove I2C Motor Driver Grove IR Distance Interrupter Grove Line Finder Grove MOSFET Grove Nunchuck Grove Single Axis Analog Gyro Grove Thumb Joystick Grove Voltage Divider Planet Geared Motor F280 By no means are you limited to just using the parts in these kits, they are just meant to help you get started.
